“We find everything more or less stupid”

“We find everything more or less stupid”

Nocturno Culto, singer and guitarist of dark thronedescribed the state of mind that he and his bandmate of black metal Norwegian have with regard to “having to stay up to date”.

In an interview conducted by David E. Gehlke for BlabbermouthNocturno Culto commented that the group has a certain “aura of mystery” despite its two members claiming to be “totally ordinary people”: “We have two sides, but we managed to stay sane [rires]. We are normal guys. We are busy with our own business.”

Regarding their mentality, he explained: “We come from a background where our attitude has been shaped by the punk and hardcore scenes. We find everything more or less stupid.”

He added : “Our former guitarist, Zephyrous, although he was the youngest, we looked up to him. He was a very good guy. He didn’t waste a single calorie on things he considered a waste of time. He was very strict about it. He should be a role model for everyone. And he was already doing that at the age of 16. That’s how it goes for Fenriz and me. We know of no other way. We’re probably not easy to get moving, but as long as we’re having a good time, we’re happy.”

Darkthrone’s last gig was in 1996 when the band played Rockefeller Music Hall in Oslo, Norway.

And even if Black’s band Metal Norwegian fully assumes this situation, it is not really common for a band to only work in the studio, especially in the world of metal where concerts are at the heart of the culture.

In a recent interview with Wall Of Sound, Nocturno Culto explained the reason for their refusal to play live.

He stated : “We see ourselves as ordinary men, passionate about music. So performing, touring and personal attention are not what we are looking for.”

The musician also spoke about the album format, which some have described as “disappearing” in recent years, due to the rise of streaming and therefore interest in singles.

When asked if he was worried that the album format might not be understood by the new generation, Culto replied: “I strongly disagree with the premise of this question, as the next generation will understand the importance of full albums. People need full albums. And young people are smart enough to understand and appreciate this format. It will last as long as the music exists. Especially in the genres Rock/metal, people want this format forever.”

Darkthrone’s new album, Astral Fortress, was released on October 28.
